Post-Doc : Bayesian chronological modelling and stable isotope analysis (Gothenburg)

Logo University of Gothenburg

In the project “From correlations to explanations: towards a new European prehistory (COREX)” geneticists and archaeologists from University College London (led by Mark Thomas and Stephen Shennan) join forces with archaeologists from Gothenburg (led by Kristian Kristiansen and Karl Göran Sjögren), and geneticists from Copenhagen (led by Kurt Kjær, Eske Willerslev and Fernando Racimo). The project will combine prehistoric human genomic, archaeological, environmental, stable isotope and climate data to better understand the processes that shaped our biological and cultural past from the time of the first farmers to the Iron Age( between 6000 to 500 BC). Main purpose of the job: to apply Bayesian statistical modelling on radiocarbon dates, aDNA analyses and paleo-ecological records from different prehistoric time horizons in Europe; to reconstruct diet and correct reservoir effects, especially for late hunter-gatherer societies.
